I don't know what it is about me and fall? Apparently it makes me clean and organize my house and it also makes me sew stuff. Specifically clothes for my youngest daughter. Like her whole wardrobe. Cause I'm crazy.
So I'll introduce you to her wardrobe:
First I went to Target and bought 4 cheap long-sleeved t-shirts. Then off to Jo-anns I went, coupons in hand! I found four coordinating fabrics to match each shirt and whipped up new four skirts!
I love toddler skirts, and just skirts in general. But there is no way in h-e-double-hockeysticks that I am paying $17 for a silly skirt that my daughter will outgrow in 6 months. That'd be crazy! But I also want her to look cute. Sewing might not always be *the* cheapest way to get clothes, probably shopping at the thrift store exclusively would be the cheapest but our thrift store has terrible selection and I just want cuter clothes than I can usually find there. Sewing fills in that gap between what I want (name brand, cute toddler clothes) and the budget I have (um, since my husband is unemployed....very little).
I mentioned the clothes before so I won't babble on and on about them. I just wanted to share the pics of all the outfits in action. (Be Warned: squirmy toddler = blurry photos, so sorry!)
First up, the purple modern outfit!
Second, the classic cream and pink combo!
Third, the fun sparkly silver and coral and purplish gray combo!
Lastly, the yellow polka dots and lacey cream shirt combo!A definite win with the super-yellow blonde hair :)
I also found tights to go with each outfit. Tahlia is comfy and warm and can move freely but also happens to look super cute. Win-Win!
